Join us to find out about the exciting potential of magic mushrooms as a treatment for mental health disorders, specifically anorexia nervosa. More broadly, we will look at how COVID-19 has contributed to the rise of mental health problems and at the possible scalable solutions. The talks will be given by the researchers from Imperial’s leading Centre for Psychedelic Research group and the Department of Psychiatry focusing on mental health.

More specifically, we will focus on the current pilot study at Imperial College London where Psilocybin is being used to treat Anorexia Nervosa.
